Can YOU help me spread the word about how awesome electric cars are? Click ?   Read today’s show notes on   Well good morning, good afternoon and good evening, wherever you are in the world, hello and welcome to the Sunday 26th August edition of EV News Daily. It’s Martyn Lee here with the news you need to know about electric cars and the move towards sustainable transport.   Thank you to for helping make this show, they’ve built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It’s a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too.   ELON MUSK FINDS REVERSE GEAR ON PRIVATISATION PLAN If you thought it had been a breathless couple of weeks for Tesla news, brace yourself, here we go again! So just to recap: "Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured" — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 7, 2018 Then late on Friday night a new blog post appeared on with a new statement from Elon.   "Given the feedback I’ve received, it’s apparent that most of Tesla’s existing shareholders believe we are better off as a public company.. I knew the process of going private would be challenging, but it’s clear that it would be even more time-consuming and distracting than initially anticipated. This is a problem because we absolutely must stay focused on ramping Model 3 and becoming profitable. We will not achieve our mission of advancing sustainable energy unless we are also financially sustainable."   This was a huge distraction from what matter, the 6,000 Model 3's and 2,000 Model S/X coming out of Freemont. Plus the vehicles coming soon. I get how going private shuts up the shorts, the critics, the doubters. As a non-investor I have no skin in the game either way, part of me would like to have seen them close the doors and get on with business. But also it was too much speculation and long-term turmoil which would have been self-inflicted. The best result is massive success in Q3 and Q4, profitability, scaring the living hell out of all the other car makers so they not only make great EVs but also make them quickly.   JAY LENO RIDES IN NEW TESLA ROADSTER: And talking about going quickly, let's move on to the new roadster. Jay Leno's Garage was on US TV and shortly after ripped into YouTube for the rest of us to see. The segment is mostly about the Tesla story, the original roadster which Jay Leno bought and how it came to the Model 3. Nothing ground-breaking for any EV fans. However then the Tesla Chief Designer Franz gives him a ride in the new roadster.   AUDI PB 18 E-TRON GOES FROM 0 TO 60 IN 2 SECONDS "The Audi PB 18 e-tron debuted late Thursday with a splash, aiming for the same rarified air as ultra-luxury supercars with wickedly powerful engines and sleek designs." says "As a concept car, the vehicle uses a powerful battery and three electric motors to go 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (62.1 miles per hour) in just over 2 seconds. With a full charge, its battery would be capable of enabling 310 miles of distance. And it can theoretically be fully charged with an 800-volt connection in 15 minutes. This car's interior is designed to empower track driving. Frankly, it's made to go obscenely fast. Audi designed a cockpit paired with a "monocoque shell that can be slid laterally," so that the driver can sit in the center of the vehicle for optimal vision and control."   E-TYPE JAGUAR GETS ELECTRIFIED "Following an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the original concept for ‘the most beautiful electric car in the world’, Jaguar Classic has confirmed it will offer all-electric E-types for sale. An EV conversion service for existing E-type owners will also be offered. To preserve the authenticity of
